    Kai Gronauer a very big prospect is coming to the Mets Orga - at the moment only the Mets know on which Level he will start maybe A Ball.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't there 3 German born players in the MLB?

    Will Ohman
    Edwin Jackson
    Jeff Baker
    They are maybe born in Germany but they are not German (I wish they would!)
    http://www.thebaseballcube.com/cities/GE.shtml - here you can find some more players born in Germany but most of them are US. (because of Army station and US parents)

    An easy way to find out if they are German is the name if their whole name sound german - they are german (in most of the times)

    Currently playing in the US (known) Germans

    Donald Lutz - Cincinnati Reds (Rookie)
    Ludwig Glaser - LA Angels (Rookie)
    Jennels Hudson - Boston Red SOX (Rookie)
    Rodney Gessmann - Minnesota Twins (Rookie or higher)
    Kai Gronauer - NY Mets (not know yet)

    + for sure
    Kid with German Mother living in US started College

    there will be some more but they are not known

Donald was born liin Watertown - Sascha was born in Frankfurt/Germany (as far as I know). They both have duel citizenship US and German.

    Go to http://pressbox.mlb.com/pressbox/media_guides/index.jsp, click on Reds, then Player Development. I didn't check the Angels Guide to see what they have on Ludwig Glaser. Are there any other new Germans coming to the US this year?

    How about Tobi Stoner who pitches form the St. Lucie Mets of the Florida State League (single high A). It was said that he was from Germany and played baseball at an American university. Does any one have information about him. Actually he is having a good season so far.?
    I don´t know anything about him but it would be great if he is german and wants to play for the german squad! There are a lot players/coaches born in Germany but most of them born in a military hospital so they are US.

    But I think that there are a lot more players with german roots out there that maybe can play for team germany
